Working for the Weekend

Does anyone else feel like the weekends are always too short? I think three day weekends should become mandatory for all workplaces. It wouldn’t be hard for my company to do. You would just have half the staff work on Monday and have Friday off and the other half do the opposite (work on Friday and get Monday off).

We are a busy society. We fill our schedules too full and then we don’t take time to sit back and relax. I mean I may sit down and watch a movie for two hours but I can’t remember the last time I actually barricaded myself in the house for an entire day and did absolutely nothing. Instead, I spend one day of my weekend running errands and the other day doing chores. And when I’ve actually made plans for the weekend, then I have to try and get both chores and errands done in a day. At the end of the day, all you want to do is fall into bed.

Don’t get me wrong, I love having plans on the weekend. I’m really looking forward to this Saturday when my church body is going to serve twenty families in our community with house cleaning, yard work, car washes and oil changes and childcare. One Great Day is going to be very rewarding for all who are involved. All I’m saying is that I am going to need another day to recover from my weekend!!!

  1. Reminds me of when our family went on vacation. With six kids…I needed a vacation to recover from my vacation. Have fun blessing others this weekend!

  2. I do know what you’re saying. I could get along with a 3 day week-end. But right now I need a job first. When I was working my last job sometimes weekends were kind of irrelevant because I would be working 7 days. A whole day doing nothing? Now unemployed, I guess I could be doing that, but I always seem to find something. After all, blogging can be a full time job. Can somebody pay me for this– please?
